Charter Consulting Inc. Announces Agreement With Motorola University

Published: Tuesday, August 31, 2004 - 21:00

Motorola University will provide Six Sigma training to industrial companies across the United States, according to an agreement reached between Motorola University and Charter Consulting Inc.

Joseph Lackner, head of Charter Consulting’s Six Sigma program, says the company plans to use the agreement to benefit its clients. “We are committed to bringing the Six Sigma discipline, rigor and execution into the growth and customer-facing processes of the enterprises we serve,” Lackner says. “Motorola University’s service quality and dedication to Six Sigma will help us have a dramatic impact on our clients’ business growth and profitability.”

Six Sigma focuses on customer requirements, process alignment, analytical rigor and timely execution. Motorola invented the practice in 1986 and has continued to evolve it since then.

“Motorola University is very excited about its agreement with Charter Consulting,” says Stacy Hanley, Motorola University director of business development. “Our mission is to extend the benefits of Six Sigma across Motorola’s value chain and to businesses worldwide. With their focus on helping their clients define a growth agenda through a detailed understanding of customer requirements, Charter Consulting will help us further our leadership in applying Six Sigma to advance marketing and growth agendas.”
